Drag King Richard III at Riverside Studios

Stance Theatre present Shakespearean historical with a difference.

Drag King Richard III

Drag King Richard III comes to the Riverside Studios from Monday 28th July – Saturday 3rd August 2014 at 8pm.

Following a highly acclaimed run at the Bristol Shakespeare Festival, Stance Theatre presents a powerful Richard III ahead of other summer blockbuster productions. Drag King Richard III explores the complexity of switching gender as lead character Laurie embarks on the challenging journey of transitioning from female to male.

Life in the wrong body is explored through Shakespeare’s deformed villain and the long term friendship Laurie has with La Femme – a butch lesbian who enjoys the trappings of femininity when opportunities arise. The play seamlessly weaves classical dialogue through contemporary text, and to stunning effect; the notorious seduction lines are quipped over a sexually charged Tango sequence.

The play offers no easy answers, it surprises whist questioning one of the last social taboos of our modern age.

Box Office Tickets are available from Riverside Studios or on 020 8237 1111.
